Windows 7: Mysteriously All my files are Missing after Windows Update

Recuva is a decent free app but there may be more advanced file recovery for such a large amount of files deleted. I've asked for others help on this.

Maybe you can use TestDisk - Partition Recovery and File Undelete

TestDisk can
  • Fix partition table, recover deleted partition
  • Recover FAT32 boot sector from its backup
  • Rebuild FAT12/FAT16/FAT32 boot sector
  • Fix FAT tables
  • Rebuild NTFS boot sector
  • Recover NTFS boot sector from its backup
  • Fix MFT using MFT mirror
  • Locate ext2/ext3/ext4 Backup SuperBlock

Have a look at this I know some of the programs have been mentioned but there are more Best Free Data Recovery and File Un-delete Utility | Gizmo's Freeware

If you are desperate then maybe you could use this little ditty of mine - you will need a second machine though
BOOTABLE UBUNTU
Make a bootable Ubuntu disk http://www.ubuntu.com/download
Set the BIOS to boot from the optical when the machine boots it will show you a screen with TRY or INSTALL > select TRY not INSTALL
When it is finished - it takes very little time you will get a screen like in the pic .
Open the drive you want > User and dig down until you get to the data / settings you may be able to copy / paste the material you want to an external source or other installed drive doing this.
I am not sure if it will but I have recovered tons of data etc using this method both on "dead" or just plain drives that you cannot get data from using Windows.
Haven't got the pic available but you will see it is easy

There is the Linux Mint Mate bootable system that could be useful too see this from the imaging tutorial https://onedrive.live.com/view.aspx?...53&app=WordPdf
